Juneau man sentenced for multiple sexual assaults

The offenses occurred between 1999 and 2015.

A Juneau man was sentenced for a series of sexual assaults occurring over 15 years, according to the Alaska Department of Law.

John Scott, 60, was sentenced to 17 years with 13.5 years suspended for second- and third-degree sexual assault, for actions which occurred between 1999 and 2001 and in 2015.

“This conviction and this sentence show that people who engage in sexual assault will be held accountable for their actions,” said Assistant Attorney General Bailey Woolfstead, who prosecuted the case as part of the Office Special Prosecution’s Rural Prosecution Unit.

Both victims were teenagers employed at a fish packing plant, Pep’s Packing, owned by Scott and his wife.

“Mr. Scott engaged in repeated sexual harassment and assault of the victims during the course of their employ,” the law department said in a news release.

The sentencing came as a result of a negotiated agreement between the state and Scott. Judge Daniel Schally presided over the case.
